Ron Whetsten s Q2. Too bad you can’t see this in color. Ron's Q2 is bright yellow with red detail and red crushed velvet interior. If you look close, in the hangar in the background is James Largley's Q2.
Harvey Sorensen completed his Q2 in March 1983 and had his first flight in July 1983, Nice Q2, by the looks of the photo Harvey plans on winning the cash at Oshkosh for best Q2.
It is important for builders to inventory the contents of all shipments within 30 days— from receipt— and to report all backorders and discrepancies to QAC in writing immediately.
As of April 1,1982, Q2 Package I was broken down into two smaller packages, called Package 1A and Package lB. The price breakdown will be as follows:
A builder electing to purchase Package 1A and Package lB and Package 2 together will save $300.00 at the $8500.00 combined price. The price for a complete kit purchased in the most economical manner is $l1,895.00 complete.
Package 1A includes materials to construct the basic fuselage, bulkheads, consoles, etc., and to mount, and hinge the canopy. Package 1B includes the remaining materials to fabricate essentially the remainder of the airframe. Package 2 is an engine installation, instrument, and miscellaneous materials package. Package 3 is the Revmaster 2100-DQ engine.
All packing of Package 1A will be done at QAC; we presently have Package lA in stock and ready for immediate delivery.
|Backlogs the other packages, except the engine, is 30 days. Orders on the Revmaster 2100-DQ engine will be filled in 60-90 days. |
Many dealers have complete Q2 Kits in stock, please call your local dealer for availability.
Available options for the Revmaster 2100-DQ engine include:
The following firms have submitted props for testing and have been approved by QAC.

The Q-200 Kit is now available. Package 1A contains the material to construct the fuselage, pre-mounted canopy and raw materials. Package lB consists of wheels, tires, brakes, welded components. machined parts and other prefabricated parts to fabricate essentially the remainder of the airframe. Package 2 is the Continental 0-200 engine installation package. The prices are as follows:
Q-200 RETRO PACKAGE
This packagec includes the components required to convert from a Q2 Package 2 to a Q-200 Package 2. It consists of:
Continental mounting hardware, spinner kit, carh heat transfer valve, 5” propellor extension, prop washer, cowling, oil separator (a must), stainless steel carb heat muff, patented AR exhaust system, fiberglass inlet air and carburetor adapter pieces, elevator and aileron counterbalance arms, engine mounts, fuel pump, sheet metal baffling kit, liquid firewall, and appropriate hardware.
QAC is continuing our credit policy for returned Q2 components. See NL #20 or contact QAC for details.
The Aileron Refiexer is now approved for the new canard. While the Reflexer was developed to help eliminate rain and bug trim effects on the old GU canard, it has proven to useful with the LS(1) 0417 Mod canard, with the Reflexer you can change the aircraft’s approach deck angle and on roll out, you can flip them full up and really get on the binders for stopping. Remember that this is a very powerful control and you should explore its use cautiously.
Over 100 people responded to the price increase in December bringing the total to over 350 and swamping us again. We are just now catching up on these orders and hope to be completely current in 30 days or less. About 4 builders are flying with the new canard at present. We will be tesing some adjustable “Sparrow strainers” at QAC in the near future. This might allow an electric elevator trim system for both pitch and roll controlled from a thumb switch on the stick!
